We are seeking a practical, hardworking and committed Assistant Caretaker with a particular focus on DIY skills for repairs, maintenance and improvement projects across the school.

The post holder will complement the work of our existing Caretaker.  We are an expanding school so opportunities for additional semi-skilled project work will arise from time to time.

There may also be further opportunities for additional weekend and school holiday “lettings” work when required.

Full training will be given to support this role along with opportunities for further development to obtain additional skills/qualifications.

The school employs a rigorous “safeguarding” approach to recruitment.

Fiveways School strives to ensure that no employee or job applicant receives less favourable treatment than another on the grounds of age, disability, race, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership, religion or belief, sexual orientation, sex or pregnancy and maternity.

We highly encourage you to arrange a tour of the school.  Please contact the school office.
